Great finds as always... What is Shipley & Halmos?
^^ Really cool SW&D label. I've only seen it once......
First time in this thread.
This is brilliant.
I must check my local thrift store!
No, the Milano/Italy thing is just a variance in logo design - akin to how Brioni dropped the "Roma" thing. The only diffusion line of Prada is Prada Sport, the one with the red stripe.
DM7 - Toughen up dude, criticism here should be taken on the chin and considered as being constructive. It is a fair bet had you posted your outfit as a new thread in MC or on WAYWRN, the criticism would have been off the charts. Of course, you are free to wear what you want, but I presume you posted your outfit expecting to get praise from members here. Next time, recalibrate your expectations and treat this as a learning experience.
Regarding the thrift - eBay flipper:
I personally think if you have an agreement to either trade or sell for proxy price, provided the other member reciprocates that generosity in a trade or further down the pipeline with other finds, it is fair game what he does with that item afterwards. I do however find it slightly unethical for a fellow to take an item at proxy price, and then a week later it is on the Bay attracting a bidding war. If it was a straight up trade, cool. If not, i.e. a raincheck, then I think it is only fair to sell that item once the raincheck is cleared. Anyway, it is completely beyond me how or why someone would pay a fortune for something they know is thrifted. I mean, if I saw a 2nd hand Kiton jacket sitting in Goodwill with a $350 price tag, I would walk on with a calm mind. To now pay for that in a forum where one knows it is thrifted is lunacy. Buy cheap and sell cheap is my attitude, it is a shame only a few here echo my sentiments.
If you are looking for anything more than $20-$25 for a dress shirt, $100 for a suit/SC, $50 for a pair of shoes, $20 for a tie purchased at thrift prices, go to eBay IMO.
shirpley and halmos is a brand that two guys started after they left TROVATA
a southern california based label
its a pretty recent label that a bunch of guys wear in socal here
gained mainstream noteriety when their varsity was on a music video worn bt a member of cobra starship
IIRC some of their tailored wear is fron Martin Greenfield like from rag&bone and Band of outsiders
That doesn't make sense to me. If something is recent and in really nice condition, who cares where its from and the fact its in a thrift store. I would honestly consider buying a $350 Kiton from a GW if it was recent, in nice shape, and my size.
To me it seems like a bad habit to regularly sell stuff to SF members for dirt cheap. Sure it makes sense to send a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt to someone for cheap, but anyone who is sending off quality suits/jackets like Brioni for cheap is straight up crazy. Make an equal trade if anything. Thrifting is already a time-consuming habit, I don't know why you would want to make it an expensive one too.
How big is too big for a pocket square? I guess I'll find out... won these 2 Brooks Brother's women's scarves, size 17"x17":
^ too big... you should have them cut down & roll hemmed.
What is the ideal size? out of curiosity.
Quote: Thanks very much to you both... I know where I'll be when the store opens tomorrow morning.
Should be fine. I have seen pocket squares up to 18"x18".
I can upon a haul of relatively recent Zegna shirts, all about 15.5-16 in many shades of blue. There's a green Gucci and a royal blue Charvet in there as well. All are available.
Also picked up a couple of ties and a pair of Porsche Design sunglasses. In order left to right it's a recent Berini, recent Canali, recent Trussardi and vintage Etro.
Got a tiny, tiny Henry Poole. Brianpore perhaps?
And a pair of +J pants. Size 33
Everything available except for the sunglasses.
